(1:09pm) Angus McDougall conducts a verbal quiz with students in Academy 1 at Crestwood High School on a Friday afternoon, April 20, 2018. The American Experience Academy is like no other program in the country and meshes history, science, and english into one comprehensive course during which students participate in intellectual discussions, create time period clothing relics from the Ohio Frontier, create lesson plans to teach 3rd graders, skin and tan deer hides, and much more. “We wanted to create a program that wasn’t like any other. We wanted something that will challenge students while keeping them engaged and force learning to go above and beyond the normal scale,” said McDougall. Kristen Jones / special to The Kent Stater
